In this latest ‘Under the Strap’ episode, host T.J. Auclair welcomes the husband and wife team of Ben and Heidi Hulka. Ben and Heidi log more miles each year than any couple on Tour. Caddying is in Ben’s blood. His father Steve recently retired (though still pops in on occasion) after a caddying career that dates back to the 1970s.
In the early 2000s, Steve started Hulka Express, a service that delivers player equipment and luggage from one event to the next. That job of loading the trailer each Sunday and driving non-stop through the night to the next PGA Tour venue now belongs to Ben and Heidi, while Ben also caddies — primarily for C.T. Pan in 2020. On this episode we hear all about how they met, their life together on the road and what that grind is like each week to race, safely, to the next Tour stop.
